Hi/Lo Thursday

I've been wanting to participate in The Riggs Family Hi/Lo Thursday for a while now and have put it off or not had the time so today I made it a point to do this!

My high for this previous week is a pretty big high, in fact I'm still pretty high! Last weekend my girls trip was to attend the Joyce Meyer convention in Long Beach, CA. From the moment I stepped off the plane on Thursday morning it was one of the most spiritually emotional weekends I've ever had. From laughing until we cried to crying until we fell asleep, my four days there was so uplifting and such a learning experience. I came home on Sunday to only fall into my bed in a pile of spiritual glee. The conference was about change which hit so close to home for me, but then again all of Joyce's conferences touch me to the core. With all the change I've gone through in the last few years I've lost touch with my true self, the one I love the most, that wild and crazy - who cares what others think - be different girl. Well it's time to let go of what I thought was what I wanted and take back what I lost. I am here for a reason and I am so loved by God and THAT is SO good! It is what it is and that is wonderful to know!

My low for the week was getting called into the principals office, kinda funny when I say it like that! No I wasn't in trouble, but I am getting "bumped", (that's what the district is calling it now) and will not be returning to the junior high in the fall. AND I also lost one of my longest clients due to a job loss in their home, both my client and I were so sad to say goodbye to each other. That's okay, again as I learned last weekend God has a plan. Things will be tight for a bit, but we will survive and this will give us the change to prepare for the homecoming of our Baby J. For now I'm just walking in my faith and trusting His plan.

You've got some enviable faith m'dear. Revel in it and it will be good to you. Sometimes I'm not so good at my own advice ;0)

So sorry to hear about your lows this week...but as you said, he has a plan and sometimes things happen for a reason. You never know there might be a better opportunity on the horizon.


Sorry about your lows this week, knowing your wonderful spirit, there will be amazing, new and exciting adventures ahead!
So glad you had such a wonderful girls out weekend, sounds uplifting and very motivating.

I love Joyce Meyer! So glad you had a chance to go hear her!

Sorry about your low this week. :( As others have said, new adventures are ahead and God has great plans for you. Jeremiah 1:9
